Hello there crafters,
Today I have a clean and simple watercolor card using the stamp set called water lily from Inkon3 and my watercolor palette from Altenew LLC. Loved making this card so much I actually went ahead and made 23 of them. Made this many cards for my upcoming swap at the Stamp and Scrapbook expo here in Orlando in a few weeks. Hope you enjoy this card today and please feel free to comment and ask any questions you may feel like asking and I will do my best and answer them accurately and timely.

The stamp set I used today is called Water Lily and it is from Inkon3.
- Cut down the pink 100lb card stock to a standard A2 size top folding card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2)
- Score using the teflon bone folder score board.
- Using the Vegabond and the MFT stitched rectangle die go went ahead die cut it out of some distress water color paper or any water color paper you have in your stash.
- Tear some copy paper and place it over the water color paper and stamp out the lotus flower using versafine black onyx ink since we will be doing some water coloring on the card today.
- Using the watercolor brush that came with the Altenew watercolor set apply the lighter pink shade called pink diamond on all the flowers.
- Next add a layer of the darker pink color called puffy heart on the second flower.
- To finish off the gradient look add two layers of puffy heart to the third flower.
- Lastly using a stamping tool stamp out the sentiment thinking of you with the same versafine ink pad.
- Add some of the yellow color to the stamen of the flowers.
- Add some liquid pixie dust to the flowers to give them a pop of shimmer and when I mean a pop I really mean a lot.
- Put some foam squares on the back of the card and adhere it to the card base.
With the leftover watercolor sitting on my glass mat I went ahead and sopped it up with some water color paper panels I had on the side waiting to be used.
